If you prefer using the cut-and-paste method, copy the data or chart to the Clipboard (Ctrl+C), switch to Power Point, and choose the Paste Special option from the Paste button’s drop-down menu on the Home tab of the Power Point Ribbon (or press Alt+HVS).Then, make sure that the Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object is selected in the As list box and the Paste option button is selected in Power Point’s Paste Special dialog box before you click OK.This helps the data stay in sync, so you won't have incorrect or out-of-date information in your chart.

By Greg Harvey The process of embedding and linking Excel 2013 worksheet data and charts in the slides of your Microsoft Power Point 2013 presentations is very similar to the techniques outlined for Word.To embed a cell selection or chart, drag the data or chart object from the Excel worksheet to the Power Point slide.If you want to link Excel data or a chart that you pasted into a Power Point presentation slide to its source Excel workbook, the only thing you do differently is to select the Paste Link option button in the Paste Special dialog box before you click OK.Sometimes, after making changes to the linked data or chart in Excel, you need to manually update the link in the Power Point presentation slide to ensure that your presentation has the latest-and-greatest version of the Excel data.If you have already created a chart in Excel, you can embed and link it to your Power Point presentation.When you embed an Excel chart in Power Point, any updates you make to the original Excel chart will automatically update in your presentation, as long as the files remain in the same location.
